February 7, 2015 The Allendale Police Department is working with Northern Highlands on its mission to educate students about the dangers of drug abuse – in all its forms. The high school is featuring a heroin awareness event on Feb. 12, focusing on drug addiction and the struggles surrounding that dependency.

At the end of the night we collected 15 pounds of medication. Thank you to all the groups who got together to bring this program to our community. Chris Herren is a great speaker who was able to bring his stirring message to us in a unique way.
